Abstract PROBLEM: This study examined the validity of the Propensity for Angry Driving Scale (PADS). Measuring road rage: Development of the Propensity for Angry Driving Scale in predicting aggressive driving. METHOD: The PADS and the Driving Anger Scale. Development of a driving anger scale. Psychological reports, 74, 83-91.) were administered to 232 college student volunteers with measures of aggressive and risky driving. RESULTS: Convergent and discriminant validity of the PADS were supported through relationships among measures of similar constructs. The PADS significantly (p<.05) predicted moving tickets, minor accidents, aggressive driving, risky driving, and maladaptive driving anger expression, above and beyond gender, miles driven per week, and trait anger. DISCUSSION: Findings suggest that the PADS is a useful predictor of aggressive driving and has some advantages over the DAS. IMPACT ON INDUSTRY: The PADS is an effective predictor of aggressive driving that complements established measures like the DAS and provides researchers with another valuable tool for the assessment of aggressive driving.
